Perhaps the robot posting of reviews needs to be replaced by an editor.

Reviews as well as forum posts (for the most part anyway) are unmoderated. Flame wars that have nothing to do with the item is the price we pay for freedom to post anything you want (almost). The way I look at it, even a negative review brings attention to your item. I stopped giving negative reviews (for the most part) because all it does is advertise the item and if I feel strongly enough to write a bad review, I want it to stay out of sight and out of mind. I welcome bad reviews now, I may lash out like a child in return, but deep down I love the attention.

I have learned that pouring gasoline on a fire never does anything but make it burn faster...

Freedom of speech is not all sunshine and lollipops . Believe me , I just went through this myself . It's not easy . I do not mean to make light of your frustration , especially if it's work that you put your heart into . You have to be pleased with the work , and then it is completely out of your hands , for good or not .

The first amendment was not written to protect inoffensive speech... I use this Ben Franklin quote way too much but:

"If all printers were determined not to print anything till they were sure it would offend nobody, there would be very little printed."

Just because you *can*, doesn't mean you *should*, and that including posting reviews that have nothing to do with the item in question.
